A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a really lovely weekend.

I am flying in super quickly with my Christmas card for this week which I am entering into the Christmas Kickstart Challenge where the theme for this fortnight is "Christmas Kids".

This used:

Image and Sentiment:  Pink Petticoat (now known as The Lovely Studio) "Ice Christmas"
Backing Papers:  Winter Wonderland Paper Pad from The Works
Nail Heads
Crystal Glamour Dust
A little bit of chalk for those rosy cheeks!!  

So that is me for today.

I decided that a card for a child doesn't need loads of layers and stitching .. .. .. .. they just want a fun image and bright papers.  But now I have finished it I must admit I wouldn't mind receiving this card myself.  Perhaps that means I am still a kid at heart .. .. .. I hope so!!!

So this puts Christmas card number 29 into the box!!  Yay!!! 

Enjoy the sparkly new week that is just around the corner.

What an adorable card Jules! I love that fun paper you used as well as the ribbon. The image is just adorable too. Yes, sometimes plainer is just as beautiful isn't it?! And we all want to be young at heart and I think most of us are, even if our bodies aren't! Hugs, Brenda
